(Assuming it's really his name)

AFAIK it's only the name of his patron saint.

I'm not going to say my post has any bearing on the actual situation. It was just a response to your argument.

(Assuming it's really his name) he just doesn't like the sound of it. I know when I was very young I hated to hear a certain diminutive of my name. It was just how it sounded -- that's part of life.

A name is an important part of ourselves, and we invest a good deal more perception and emotion into it than some may realize.
Good observation. One of my instructors is named Peter, but we all call him Pete because that's how he prefers to be addressed. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with the diminutive Pete for Peter. I just think using the diminutive for the name of my patron saint disrespectful to St. Peter the Aleut. Maybe it isn't, but my perception that it is is enough for me to hate being called Pete.

Don't. Call. Me. Peter.

If your body is Europe, I think St. Peter's is about somewhere betwixt...well, you know. And even if you are Porter you are porter to His Holiness, the Successor of St. Peter's chambers. Either way, you are Peter Porter Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers. I could us even more Shakespearean innuendo with that one, but I'll let you solve the enigma.

A porter is a very good beer. In fact, Porter has probably had a Black Butte porter some time in his life.

Well, yes. You know where I live. There's lots of that stuff around and it's good stuff. Sometimes I still just prefer a Guinness tho. Now, my wife is a real hophead -- the stronger the IPA, the better. There is no peace in the Doran household some evenings depending who shopped for the beer. ;)

I'm very disappointed in you. Guinness is revolting. I'd rather go through the hell of having to drink a Heineken than even so much as look at a glass of Guinness.

Drinking port after dinner, on the other hand, is no sin.

Beer is for peasants. We drinketh wine, thou commoner. We drinketh not beer, lest We be like thee, who picketh the wheat and makest beer out it.

My biggest pet peeve: People calling me "Pete". >:(

LOL. I've never understood the hissy fit you throw every time someone calls you Pete. Pete is merely a diminutive of Peter, which in itself is a diminutive of Petrus. Peter already is a diminutive.

Are you sure Peter is a diminutive of Petrus? I assume you mean a diminutive derived by truncation or a similar process, like "Rach" for "Rachel" or "Lar" for "Larry" for "Lawrence". It is quite possible that Peter descends from Petrus by other historical processes: the entry on etymonline suggests that it may simply be based on the Old English oblique (genitive or dative) stem.

Wine is for whiny girls and pretentious middle-class moms.

Cognac and good whiskey on the other hand is the province of the country gentleman.

Ironic you say that, since wine basically makes itself, while it took sophisticated observation and experimentation for early man (probably the Egyptian civilization) to make beer.

Yeah I also wear work clothes and boots and live in a beaten up old house. The days of youthful aspiration to extravagance are behind me.

Have you tried craft brew versions of Irish dry stout? It could be you don't like the style of beer or don't like the particular version made by Guinness.

There's nothing wrong with regular beer. Pilseners like Hertog Jan or Grolsch can be very nice. There's no excuse for Guinness, though.

A pilsner is a kind of beer. A stout is another. An ale is another. They're all "regular beer" with ancient provenances. So you like pilsner.

Pilsener pretty much is "regular beer", isn't it? Everything else is a speciaalbier, which is divided into several subcategories, like tripels, stouts, pale ales, etc.

Obviously I can't speak to the way the Netherlands categorizes things. Ale is ancient across the channel.

Oh no no no. Well, I think in modern continental Europe pilsner is the standard, mass-market style, and in the US, too (to an extent). But pilsner wasn't developed till the 19th century. Those other styles you mention predate pilsner by quite a lot. Mainly it's because pilsner and other lagers require controlled cool temperatures for fermentation that were unavailable prior to industrialization. For example, I ferment my ales in a room temperature closet, but I need a fridge with an external thermostat for my lagers and other cool-fermented beers like Kolsch.

Can't you do something about it as a mod/old-timer? I've mentioned it a couple times in those long Catholic threads where they quote the previous 20 responses so they can give proper context to their "Nuh uh! Orthodox/Catholics stink!" response... but alas, the avalanches continue...

TV shows having these broken up seasons where they show a few episodes and then you have to wait months. They showed like three episodes of The Good Wife back around December/January, and then stopped. It comes back next month. Personally, I think The Good Wife will end this season. She's going to become attorney general or whatever. When Will died, it had to be over.
